Schoolhouse

by Leanna Brodie
Directed by Joy Forbes
February 7-11 & 14-18, 2017

Full of warmth and poignant humour, Schoolhouse evokes a way of life shared by generations of rural Canadians, exploring timeless themes of rejection, of compassion, of damage, of hope. Laugh, cry or rekindle memories of life in a one-room schoolhouse. This is an inspiring play that celebrates the one-room schoolhouse era and is a tribute to all good teachers, but especially those young women who worked so hard to help their students succeed.

The Melville Boys

by Norm Foster

This classic Canadian comedy by Norm Foster explores sibling rivalry and resentment as well as themes of love, loyalty, and compassion. Two brothers, Owen and Lee Melville, arrive at the family lakeside cabin toting beer and anticipating nothing more strenuous than a relaxing weekend of fishing. However, the arrival of two sisters, Loretta and Mary, throws their plans out of whack. The women spend the night and are the catalysts to a tender, unsentimental, and often hilarious look at what happens when four lives in transition touch common ground.
